The Holy Spirit:
1. Changes our thinking
2. Produces life and peace in and through us
3. Dwells in us
4. Will resurrect us

Today: 5. The Spirit that empowers us brings us victory over sin.
Sanctification is the continuing change worked by God in us, freeing us from sinful habits and forming in us Christlike affections, dispositions, and virtues. It does not instantly eradicate sin, nor does it merely restrain or repress sin. Sanctification produces real transformation.

2. Refuse to Entertain Sinful Thoughts
“If you merely repress a temptation or this first motion of sin within you, it will probably come up again still more strongly. To that extent I agree with the modern psychology. Repression is always bad. “Well, what do you do?” asks someone. I answer: When you feel that first motion of sin, just pull yourself up and say, “of course I am not having any dealings with this at all.” Expose the thing and say, “This is evil, this is vileness, this is the thing that drove [Adam] out of Paradise.” Pull it out, look at it, denounce it, hate it for what it is; then you have really dealt with it. You must not merely push it back in a spirit of fear, and in a [cowardly] manner. Bring it out, expose it, and analyze it; and then denounce it for what it is until you hate it.
